Yes, this is too nitpicky :-)

One of the reasons we use `_' for packages is that we can use `-' itself
in the package name without creating ambiguity about which is the
package name and which is the version plus Debian revision.

Since none of the GNU licenses have a `-' in their name, we don't need
to use `_' instead of `-'.
